I'm home with a sick girl today. Lauren has been fighting a cold for about week and today seems to be the peak. At least that is what I thought at 6:00 a.m. when she was coughing and sniffling and hoarsely calling for me to fix her covers! That is when I made the decision she would stay home today. So here we are - at home. I have silently crawled away to my computer hoping she won't notice that I am no longer sitting beside her listening - listening to her sweet little voice - that sweet little voice which has not stopped since 6:00 a.m.. SERIOUSLY!
The girl is chatty. We've talked about pre-school, we've discussed all the merits of wearing warm slippers, we've covered the myriad of reasons why hair is soft and not hard like fingernails, we've thoroughly discussed why mommies have to go into the bathroom by themselves and I've had play by play documentation of Sponge Bob Squarepants and that's just the talking. Would you believe there is a song for every thought and action that may occur in a day? THERE IS! Really. I am not kidding. The girl never stops talking or asking questions or just simply sharing her life views. I don't know where she gets it. Ohhhhhhh, I know what you all are thinking and you are wrong - dead wrong. I mean sure I talk a lot but it's valuable information - trust me... :-)
So that has been my day so far. I expected to get a lot done while she was resting, getting plenty of sleep and fluids but all this stimulating conversation has really kept me busy! Oh My Gosh - she just discovered I was gone - Oh no here it comes "hey mom..."
